The CCA is the national "voice" of Canada's 83,000 beef producers, the Canadian Cattlemen's Association (CCA) structure represents every phase of the production system; the purebred, cow/calf, backgrounding and feedlot sectors. The CCA was founded by producers and is led by a producer-elected board of directors from across Canada.

The PEICP also represents its members regionally on the Maritime Beef Council. This organization is made up of the beef cattle organizations of the three Maritime Provinces. Its main objective is to work collaboratively on issues that affect beef producer across the region.
